Author:    Ray Donnelly

Hi GnuTLS devs,

When `NDEBUG` is passed as a compile flag to nettle, the asserts are all elided meaning that `SIGABRT` does not happen (instead segfaults happen) and `custom_abrt` is not called in `tests/slow/cipher-api-test.c`.

This means that we must build nettle without this flag making it slower than it would otherwise be.

Are there other reasons to build nettle with asserts enabled though?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
